Season in Review: 2015-16

  2015-16 was a slow season for Gordie Howe Hat Tricks.  There were a total of seven.  The previous low total I had researched was 10 in 2012-13, a lock-out shortened season..  Compared to 2014-15, fights per game was down to 0.28 from 0.32 and goals per game down to 2.71 from 2.73.  So this was more a case of the stars not aligning for the GHHTs this year.  Of note, Chris Neil notched his fourth career GHHT while playing in 900th career game.  Alex Petrovic recorded a pair of Hat Tricks on February 9, 2006.  One was the Gordie Howe Hat Trick, another was for fighting the same opponent, Evander Kane, three times during the same game.
